RCA Records singer, songwriter and producer Sammy Adams premieres the official video for his new single “LA Story” across VEVO, the world’s leading all-premium music video and entertainment platform. The video was directed by Jon Augustavo and features Adams along with Mike Posner gallivanting around Los Angeles. “LA Story” which was co-written by Adams along with Ryan Tedder, Noel Zancanella, Mike Posner and Oren Yoel is currently available at all digital retail providers.
“LA Story embodies living life the way you want to and having success with it,” Adams explains of the inspiration of the song. “Although I started in Boston, everyone strives to live their dreams, and Los Angeles is where I’m able to do that best at the moment. The song was inspired by all the places I’ve been and where I thankfully am today.”
Adams wrapped up his spring national tour with T. Mills where he criss-crossed the country performing to sold out crowds.
Adams is currently in the studio working on his debut RCA Records album coming later this year and recently co-wrote and was featured on Enrique Iglesias’ single “Finally Found You” which made it to the Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and was certified gold by the RIAA. Last summer, Adams premiered the official video for his explosive summer single, “Only One,” across VEVO. The song was also featured as part of CBS’ promos for the 2013 NFL playoffs.
“LA Story embodies living life the way you want to and having success with it.”
Late last year, Adams released OK Cool, his pre-album (mixtape) which featured a snippet of his track “All Night Longer,” now available for sale at all digital music providers. In early 2012, Adams debuted the music video for his first single, “Blow Up,” on VEVO and made his nationwide television debut on “Conan.”
Adams burst into the music scene in 2010, after releasing his breakthrough single “I Hate College” – a cheeky remix of Asher’s Roth’s “I Love College,” which he recorded in his dorm room at Trinity College in Connecticut. He then went on to independently release album Boston’s Boy shot to the top of the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart on its first day out in March 2010, selling over 100,000 copies in the U.S after its release.
His independent viral videos have garnered millions of YouTube views, including “I Hate College” (7 M) and “Driving Me Crazy” (5.9 M). He has performed over 250 shows and sold out theatres across North America in the last year. Adams has graced the stage at Lollapalooza, Bamboozle, Global Dance and has sold out shows at New York City’s Terminal 5 and Roseland Ballroom.
